Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes. It should be about directly faster, higher, stronger. Might as well add golf, bowling, poker, and darts.

Allow me to be more specific perhaps: team ball sports. Relays are fine. Handball is not.

If you had your way there'd be no Dream Team or Miracle on Ice.

Sad.

If ping pong is a sport, why not bowling?

I must not be being adequately clear; I'd wipe that one out too. Track & field, rowing, swimming, cycling, lifting, gymnastics, speed skating, biathlon, archery, skiing... there are others I'm not thinking of but you get the idea.

Repair of the Day: a guy riding the Erie Canal Trail from Buffalo to Albany cut a tire (44mm WTB Byway). We had some 43mm Panaracer Gravel King SK TLCs in stock. They set up tubeless nice and easy on his Zipp 303s. Couple of other adjustments, a few supplies and he was on his way. Hopefully, he made his destination for the day.

​​​​​​This cinematic representation of the Little 500 is far more entertaining than all those fake sports they have in the Olympics.

I think you might be in a Movies! dead zone though.

Sad.

Is shark jumping an Olympic sport?
zero hours of Olympic watching is planned by me.

Why would I watch the Olympics when I could watch Major League Baseball?

I don't like the professionals playing. It's supposed to be for amature athletes. I know ..."all the other countries are doing it" The " miracle " was the miracle because it was amatures against a lot of thier pros. Only a handful of the miracles made it to the NHL. Basketball is primarily professionals. Hockey too. I think it's dumb
